Use Cloud Services To Make Your Smartphone An E-Wallet



Article Written by Sally Perkins

These days, carrying a physical wallet seems almost a thing of the past. As credit card processing systems have improved and the availability of smartphones has broadened, more consumers have done away with physical wallets. Fewer people than ever before choose to carry cash and not very many people use checkbooks.

Most people pay with credit or debit cards for the average transaction. With a few extra steps, you don't even need to carry the card with you, thanks to the availability of digital storage on the cloud. Setting up an e-wallet can let you pay quickly and conveniently with your mobile device.

ThinPrint Cloud Services Unveils Perfect Printing Solution for Coworking Spaces and Universities

Grazed from ThinPrint

ThinPrint Cloud Services, a subsidiary of the endpoint print management expert ThinPrint, today released the newest version of ezeep, the leading printing solution for coworking spaces and universities. RFID-based printing is now fully integrated into ezeep, making it the ideal solution in markets where users share multiple printers. In addition to this highly user-friendly set up, the new updates eliminate the need for IT administrators to spend time on printer assignments or printer driver management.

Printing in coworking spaces or universities has historically been challenging for both users and IT administrators. Users are tasked with selecting and gaining access to the correct printer and clicking through widely-varying user interfaces, while admins are burdened with assigning the correct printers to the users, as well as managing printer drivers.

The new version of ezeep eliminates the need for users to have to choose among several printers on a list. Instead, they simply select the virtual ezeep printer, go to the printer they find most convenient and initiate the printout by holding any RFID card against the RFID scanner connected to it. A fitness club ID can be used just as easily as an employee or library card. The only requirement being that the card must be RFID-enabled. In addition to simplifying the process, ezeep now ensures unauthorized persons cannot accidentally or intentionally take a printout from the printer.

Using Cloud Services to Speed Up Your Development Workflow

Modern software development can be quite demanding in terms of hardware and software resources, and it's not rare for programmers to invest into high-end machines just for writing code nowadays. When you take a look behind the scenes, it makes perfect sense that things are in this state at the moment, but more importantly, you would probably notice a few opportunities for improving your own situation if you're clever enough. Most notably, integrating cloud technologies into your development workflow can be a huge boost to your productivity if you do it right.

Complex Computations

Fog Computing Leading the Conversation

Cloud services have been touted as being responsible for the incredulous rise of the Internet of Things (IoT). Today, numerous people and organizations use smart interconnected devices in their day-to-day operations. 

Unbelievably, the concept of M2M (machine to machine) has existed for more than a decade. However, most organizations never bothered to check out and unleash the technology's power. 

M2M has the power to provide insightful takes on data. The key issue was how the technology would have meshed with prevailing infrastructure. We've only just recently unlocked the potential thanks to the fact that our current technology has been able to scale up to handle the bulk of the data. Cloud computing has been right at the heart of the equation.
